Storyline 3: Is there a way to control what is highlighted in the Menu?

Apr 02, 2019

Is there a way to control what items are highlighted in the menu in Storyline 3? For example, imagine there are 10 slides about Topic 1. I want to only show "Topic 1" in the menu, but have it highlighted when the learner is on any of the 10 slides. Is there any way to do this?

I am working on application training, and there are many very short slides (as short as half a second). Rather than have them all show up in the Menu, I'd prefer to have a single item for each task, and have it stay highlighted on multiple slides.

Hi Wendy, as far as I know that is not possible with SL3 when using an in-built menu option. You can build a custom menu that does that. I have had to build custom menu's before - it takes a bit of work and I only do it if the built in menu isn't going to work for me. Let me know if you would like to know more about custom menus.

 Hi there, Wendy. 😀

If you're looking to highlight menu items or adjust those colors, I have a hunch that the tips shared in this discussion may be what you're looking for. If that doesn't quite hit the mark for your goal, please let me know!
